Ever wished you were a strong chess player? In this course we will explore chess in depth covering topics that will elevate your game from average to very strong.
In my previous course, we covered some basic ideas such as common openings, simple tactics, and basic strategy. In "Learn to Play Chess Like a Master" we will build on those ideas using both traditional still chess positions as well as new cutting edge software so students can easily follow along while I go through positions and analyze the game.
I have gone from weak chess player to experience tournament player by studying with chess Grandmasters in Vietnam for over 5 years so I understand the problems that the average chess player has in improving at the game and what holds you back from getting the kind of results you want.

My courses are designed based on my many years as a teacher and student of education and business. I hold a master's degree in business education and have been designing curricula, teaching, and doing corporate training for almost 15 years.
The business, language, and chess courses that I have built on Udemy are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet and the Udemy platform as my ideal mode of delivery.
The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management and Human Resources in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for 9 years.
After arriving in Vietnam I and a small group of motivated individuals launched and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. After 5 years of building the business, I led the successful sale of the company to a local conglomorate (XLE Vietnam, owner of the Saigon Heat pro basketball franchise).
I have been fluent in the Vietnamese language for many years and enjoy teaching the language to other expats and non-native speakers. In addition, I have spent many years training with chess grandmasters in Vietnam and hope that my courses will help aspiring business people, Vietnamese language speakers, and chess players reach their goals.
